Well, if we didn't take Bond and Gibbs we would had seven freakin' players on the roster. Bond and Gibbs signed late. Your and the fanbases' frustration should be on Barnes and his recruiting style. Seven players--Kevin Durant is not walking through that door, anymore.
The real question is why didn't we take Pressey. Because we didn't want to scare away Joseph or Kabongo. Barnes determined that Joseph and Kabongo of 1 year each was better than having Pressey for four years. You could also make the case with Gibson, although I don't think the recruiting of Gibson would have scared away any future bigs, so I wouldn't mind having him as the 8th player on the team.
Pressey would be pretty damn good for four years. It will be interesting to follow Gibson's career.
